Reply To: Thing of beauty


Just got my Spitfire out of the workshop to start her up, having not riden it since some time before Christmas and two things are beginning to bug me. Why does the clock not keep good time? I’m forever resetting it as I can’t stand having a clock that doesn’t tell the correct time! It seems to lose about 5 minutes a week. Also, wouldn’t it have been nice to have blanked off the redundent mirror holes in the clutch and front break fittings. My Commando had rubber plugs but wouldn’t a nice domed alloy plug look good? I think you can tell I need to get out on it soon then these things will stop annoying me.
